Instructions for the programming and adjustment

FT18M Program and adjust image
  1. TRIMMER FOR THE SENSING RANGE ADJUSTMENT: The photocell is supplied with max. sensing range with the trimmer totally rotated in the clockwise direction. The sensitivity reduces by rotating the trimmer in the anti-clockwise direction.
  2. SWITCH NPN/PNP: The photocell is supplied with the switch in P (PNP output). To change to NPN turn the switch to N in the anti-clockwise direction. WARNING! For a correct working of the unit, do not carry out the switching when the photocell is powered.
  3. GREEN LED - STABILITY INDICATOR: This led is on when the level of the output signal and the alignment of the photoelectric sensors are in the optimum position. In the case that the led is off this indicates that the lens is obscured or for the types with direct reflection a possible alteration of the dimension or color of the object to be detected.
  4. YELLOW LED - OPERATION INDICATOR: This led is on when the object to be detected enters the sensing range of the photocell giving output signals.

NOTE: Before giving a power supply to the photocell it is recommended that the same unit be programmed by using the switch in the required function NPN or PNP.

NOTE: It is recommended that the trimmer and the switch be rotated very carefully by using a proper tool otherwise these can be seriously damaged.
